"Okay for weekend getaway at last minute"
The hotel is right off the hwy 17 as you get into Wilmington in this quiet area. Hotel room was clean overall, but we found hairs on the wall beside the hairdryer, on sink counter, and on our pillowcase. If you are going in to stay in summer, I suggest getting their early and turning on AC in your room and then come back in few hours. They do not leave […] AC on in the room, so our first night was really hotter than we like. We like to sleep in cool room at night. Also, if you get the room facing sunrise, you will want to stuff some towels around the bottom to the curtain (too short) or sunrise will wake you up. The buffet was really good for being free - they had eggs, biscuits, bread for toast, cereals, milk, yogurt, juices, coffees/teas, pancake machine (we actually enjoyed watching it work), instant oatmeal, instant grits, sausage/bacon, gravy for those that wanted it., and sweets - muffins and cinnamon rolls. Each room comes with microwave and refrigerator which was usefully. The 3rd floor ice machine did not work the entire weekend (F-Sunday). I had to go down to the bottom floor to get ice. The front desk staff was pleasant and responsive. Had no issues with noise or neighbors. If we decide to get away again, we will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Only slight issue was the b-fast staff on the second day was ready to run everyone out at 10am, everyother day they were ok to let folks do b-fast past 10am. I know it might be silly to have an issue with a free b-fast but it was a little disappointing to see such a hard line take on a holiday weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant - hotel is doing some renovations so I think it will only get better! Great location near UNCW campus/restaurants. Very helpful staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Second stay in this hotel"
Nice hotel. Great location. Comfy bed. The only problem this time is that we were using the pull out sofa sleeper. We didn't pull it out until after 11pm and were surprised to find it broken. The head part was fallen to the floor, so the one sleeping on it had to sleep with her head at the foot and her feet dangling at the other end. We didn't feel […] like getting into a big uproar with hotel staff that late, so we just made the best of it. Point being, if you are counting on using a sleeper sofa, check it out when you check in to make sure it works properly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"First Time Guest"
I had never stayed here before, but the hotels.com information on their website sold me. Upon arrival, I was very pleased. The continental breakfast is great, with both hot and cold selections.

"Right next to Walmart"
We had a and wonderful family vacation there. Nice location, room was clean, and had kitchen and TV with Big screen. Only one problem was that we could not get Wi-FI signal for my i-pad on bed, however it worked in the living room. It was because our room was at the very edge of upper floor and most rooms should not have this problem. Anyway, other […] than this, everything was just perfect. Thanks.

"not the best ...not the worst"
I was greeted by a new front desk employee who was not sure of what she was supposed to do , still training. The trainer or more experienced person was not being very helpful to her. As a result my credit card was charged 2 times for the same stay. I eventually called my credit card company to handle the problem. The hotel smelled of indian food and […] needs some rug shampooing. there are nicer places to stay in Wilmington...that is my first and last stay there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect accomodations in a great location"
I spent 4 nights here on business and could not have been more pleased with the accommodations, and especially the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Complimentary wifi -- yes! I much appreciated the healthy breakfast options offered in addition to the typical comfort food offerings. The location was perfect -- walking distance to restaurants […] and shopping centers, and a short drive to the beach. I would be happy to return here and highly recommend this hotel.

"A little pricey for what you get"
Check in and out was fast and simple. Room was clean but had a musty odor and the carpet felt damp and it seemed humid in the room which you would not expect with the AC set at 70. It was the same both nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic (but you gotta like a hard bed)."
The bed was hard as a rock. Even though it looked awesome I got more sleep on the pull out with two kids. The ice machine was broken on our floor. Despite these two problems the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was neat and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Staff, the facility needs a lot of work."
First the good parts: We chose this location because of its proximity to beaches and downtown Wilmington. In this regard we were very happy. Our location made it an easy few mile drive to get to wherever we wanted to go. Also pleasing was the staff. To a person they were polite, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. On our first morning one of the […] cleaning personnel introduced herself to us by name and made sure we knew that if we needed any extra towels, etc. we just had to ask. She was very pleasant, as was all the staff. Finally the morning breakfast was perfect for my family. There was nothing fancy, but there was enough choices that everyone found something to eat. Additionally there were 2-3 staff there constantly replenishing the food and coffee so we never felt like we missed out. Now the bad. The ice maker on our floor was broken the entire trip. Our room smelled terribly musty and the AC clearly was not taking any moisture out of the air as the room's dampness was palatable. (A box of candy in my bag was a sodden brick of candy after two days.) I The overall feel of the hallways and our room was old and tired, like the management was trying to squeeze one more year out of the building before a remodel. We were only in the room to sleep so we were not devastated, however if I had known in advance I would have spend a few extra dollars for a nicer room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel fit our needs for a trip to the beach. Its minutes away from Wrightsville Beach, and about a 20 minute drive to Kure or Carolina Beach.The only real complaint is the housekeeping. Stayed 4 nights and most days, we didn't get any more coffee or toiletries to replace what we had used, and had to go to the front desk to get them. One of the […] days, the housekeeper didn't come into our room at all. We called the desk when we got in from doing things, and were told that the housekeepers had left for the day, but someone would come and take care of our room when we left for dinner. Just a little aggrevating, but otherwise this was a good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

exceeded our expectations. Not the best location, unless you like Walmart, but the staff is very friendly, the hotel is clean and breakfast was nice. They were booked the evening we were there and they were going out of there way to make sure everyone had an enjoyable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Closed pool, Nobody at the desk during the night"
The hotel was okay. This is the second time we have stayed here, and probably the last time I would choose this hotel. The two reasons why are as follows...We went out to the pool to sit and read, only to find out by a sign posted at the pool that it was shut down by the New Hanover County Health Department. Nobody mentioned this when we checked in. […] Also, when we checked in, we were told that their would be nobody at the desk between 10pm and 6am. We have never heard of such a thing in a hotel before. Luckily, we didn't need them, but if we did, this would have been a big inconvenience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean and neat. It was great to be there with a baby (which I was) b/c the kitchen had a sink, fridge nad microwave, so food prep was easy. The pool was great and kept very well. The bed was very uncomfortable. That was my only complaint. :)Genuine Expedia guest review
No complaints but nothing special about the suite we stayed in, bed not that comfortable, great breakfast, parking is free and plenty, only 5-6 miles to the beach, good nearby shopping and restaurantsGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would of been fantastic except,"
The room was comfortable and clean, the daily breakfast was a plus and pretty good. It is located in a nice area with lots of stuff to do very close. I would have rated it a 5 if it were not for one thing, the day we checked in we got into the room and turned the a/c on, it sounded like someone started a diesel truck. The noise was horrid. I went down […] and told the front desk who wrote it on a piece of paper and to the best of my knowledge that was the last action taken to remedy the problem. Spent the next 3 nights deciding on sweating, (mid 80's), or sleeping next to a tractor trailer. needless to say not very happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is nice and clean. I like because is smoking-free enviroment. My kids and I enjoyed it. The breakfast was excelent. You can find restaurants and stores very easy and the beach is only 7 miles away. i recommend this hotel to everyone. I will come back to the same hotel, even I know are some more around the city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"UNCW college visit"
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 1 night during a college visit to UNCW. The location is ideal, very close to UNCW and dining. Ideally located between downtown and Wrightsville Beach. The only negative thing I could say is that they need to invest in new pillows. They were very soft and felt lumpy and old. We still slept well but a newer pillow […] would be better.
